Today’s attribute of God is Wonderful Counselor. For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6.
I went to a spin class tonight and I found myself not wanting to become symbiotic with a bunch of sweaty people while listening to crazy loud music meant to speed you up.
I know the music and the encouragement from the instructor was supposed to really get me going. I found myself resisting. I think its a control thing. I don’t want others telling me how I should feel. Silly I know.
If someone is trying to lead me into a specific experience and I know they are trying to produce in me a certain feeling, I find within myself a strong urge to resist.
Tonight I didn’t want to speed up when the instructor said speed up and I didn’t want to stand up or sit down when they said to do so. I didn’t recognize it until tonight that I’m consciously resisting to be led.
I wonder if I do this in other areas of my life? I guess it can be good to not allow others to control you into feeling something you shouldn’t experience?
I’m guessing this has something to do with my past when I was drawn into something negative and now even if its positive I am naturally resistant…
My pearl is that the Lord can help me to never be drawn into negative experiences and allow me to enjoy positive group experiences.
